LONDON (Aug. 21)
The Minister of Public Works today turned down an application by the anti-fascist Yellow Star movement to use Trafalgar Square for a public meeting on Sunday, September 2.
A Ministry spokesman said the application had been refused “for the same reasons as set out in a statement issued concerning meetings by the National Socialist organization, Mosley’s Union movement and the British National party.” He said it was not desirable for the Square to be used for controversial meetings at a time when London is full of visitors.
The Yellow Star movement had planned to fly the Star of David in the Square. At a meeting last Sunday, the group decided that if their application was refused, protest meetings would follow.
